Typical Republican, stupid opinion based on zero facts, and thinks he alone is responsible for his success.

Mythology of 'The American Dream'.

The fact is that of the modern economies, America is near the bottom of the list when it comes to upward social mobility. The idea that one can get ahead if they work hard is less reality in American than it is in other countries, because our government, aligned with big money, has implemented policies that are stacked against workers keeping the fruits off their labor, and our education system is stacked against the lower and middle classes.

In America, what you are born into plays a greater role in where you will end up. The American Dream is dead.
